I was combing through some photos from earlier in the year, when I found this series of Coffee. I’ve been meaning to do something with them, as they are such a clear example of how horses try to communicate with us (and I like how they portray the relationship he has with his ‘mom’). So, just for fun, with my translations of Coffee’s ‘words’ …
“Hello people! I think it is time for me to go in now!”
“Here is my halter. Please put it on me now.”
“Stop messing around, please. I want to go in!”
“At last you’ve come!”
“Ahh … nothing like a good face rub!”
“Sigh … it’s nice to have an obedient human.”
Be good to your horses! And be sure to listen to what they try to tell you!
